The Joe Dart II is the latest installment in the Joe Dart artist series signature bass collection. The Dart II offers a classic passive tone within a full-scale 34" package with its custom contoured body and simplified dual single-coil layout. The bass features a premium ash body, select maple neck, and passive split-coil pickups at the heart of its warm, punchy tonality. Dual volume controls are standard, but there are no tone controls to color the sound; therefore, the tone is manipulated solely by the user's technique and finesse. It is finished in Natural Velvet, comes with 21 frets and a custom artist series neckplate, and is tuned to E standard with custom gauge .045 - .105" Ernie Ball stainless steel roundwound wound bass strings.
